1. gpg --keyserver --recv-key 1D1F0DC78F173680

sudo pacman-key --lsign 1D1F0DC78F173680

2.Install: python3-threaded_servers (AUR) + pyalpm (extra repository) + pacserve (AUR)

@skystrife I confirm this. But I had to uninstall completely and then install python3-threaded_servers. Silmply reinstall didn't work.

My issue seems resolved for me by upgrading to python3-threaded_servers 2018.4.28-1.

I am also having the same problem that @mareex reported

Similar problem on my end. I get an endless list of the following three lines until I kill the pacman process (seems to be redirecting to itself in an endless loop):

cannot update my system anymore after upgrading to 2018-8. Pacman is stuck and I have a process called "python3 -mThreadedServers.Pacserve --multicast" eating a lot of cpu.

python-dbus seems to be a mandatory dependency now ? pacserve refused to start without it

I've added Avahi support alongside multicast support for peer detection. There are probably still some bugs to work out but it works so far in my initial tests.

@Xyne Hi, there is a better way to work without users and sysusers. You only have to add to your service file "DynamicUser=yes" and some other security stuff (read here: ;-) Here is my version: By the way, are there any plans for avahi support?

Sorry, I added the pacserve user in haste. Today's update uses systemd.sysusers to add the user and group instead. The update should work if you stop the pacserve service first but manual intervention may be required. Sorry for the inconvenience.
